thp: close race between split and zap huge pages
Sasha Levin has reported two THP BUGs[1][2]. I believe both of them have the same root cause. Let's look to them one by one. The first bug[1] is "kernel BUG at mm/huge_memory.c:1829!". It's BUG_ON(mapcount != page_mapcount(page)) in __split_huge_page(). From my testing I see that page_mapcount() is higher than mapcount here. I think it happens due to race between zap_huge_pmd() and page_check_address_pmd(). page_check_address_pmd() misses PMD which is under zap: CPU0 CPU1 zap_huge_pmd() pmdp_get_and_clear() __split_huge_page() anon_vma_interval_tree_foreach() __split_huge_page_splitting() page_check_address_pmd() mm_find_pmd() /* * We check if PMD present without taking ptl: no * serialization against zap_huge_pmd(). We miss this PMD, * it's not accounted to 'mapcount' in __split_huge_page(). */ pmd_present(pmd) == 0 BUG_ON(mapcount != page_mapcount(page)) // CRASH!!! page_remove_rmap(page) atomic_add_negative(-1, &page->_mapcount) The second bug[2] is "kernel BUG at mm/huge_memory.c:1371!". It's VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageHead(page), page) in zap_huge_pmd(). This happens in similar way: CPU0 CPU1 zap_huge_pmd() pmdp_get_and_clear() page_remove_rmap(page) atomic_add_negative(-1, &page->_mapcount) __split_huge_page() anon_vma_interval_tree_foreach() __split_huge_page_splitting() page_check_address_pmd() mm_find_pmd() pmd_present(pmd) == 0 /* The same comment as above */ /* * No crash this time since we already decremented page->_mapcount in * zap_huge_pmd(). */ BUG_ON(mapcount != page_mapcount(page)) /* * We split the compound page here into small pages without * serialization against zap_huge_pmd() */ __split_huge_page_refcount() VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageHead(page), page); // CRASH!!! So my understanding the problem is pmd_present() check in mm_find_pmd() without taking page table lock. The bug was introduced by me commit with commit 117b0791ac42. Sorry for that. :( Let's open code mm_find_pmd() in page_check_address_pmd() and do the check under page table lock. Note that __page_check_address() does the same for PTE entires if sync != 0. I've stress tested split and zap code paths for 36+ hours by now and don't see crashes with the patch applied. Before it took <20 min to trigger the first bug and few hours for second one (if we ignore first).
